Cross-platform numerical computational package and programming language.
What is Scilab ?
Scilab is free and open source software for numerical computation providing a powerful computing environment for engineering and scientific applications. By using matrix-based computation, dynamic typing, and automatic memory management, many numerical problems may be expressed in a reduced number of code lines, as compared to similar solutions using traditional languages, such as Fortran, C, or C++.
What does Scilab do ?
Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions. It has a high level programming language allowing access to advanced data structures, 2-D and 3-D graphical functions.
A large number of functionalities is included in Scilab:
- Maths & Simulation
For usual engineering and science applications including mathematical operations and data analysis.
- 2-D & 3-D Visualization
Graphics functions to visualize, annotate and export data and many ways to create and customize various types of plots and charts.
Algorithms to solve constrained and unconstrained continuous and discrete optimization problems.
Tools to perform data analysis and modeling
- Control System Design & Analysis
Standard algorithms and tools for control system study
- Signal Processing
Visualize, analyze and filter signals in time and frequency domains.
- Application Development
Increase Scilab native functionalities and manage data exchanges with external tools.
- Xcos - Hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator
Modeling mechanical systems, hydraulic circuits, control systems...
Scilab as a platform
Thanks to its ability to interconnect with third-party technologies and applications, Scilab can also act as a unique platform to bring together codes written in different programming languages in a single, unified language, thus facilitating their distribution, their back-up and use.
